So Salute has come and gone and I bet Neil is busy today, unloading the Hasslefree stuff from the van before returning it. I would have loved to have stayed the extra night and joined the post Salute festivities but I had to get home... but there you go
I turned up on the Friday and was let in before the van so I got to meet a few Frothers and help to set up a table and move a few bits around. We set the HF stand up apart from unwrapping the blister racks and setting up the miniatures in their cabinets and walked to the Travelodge (OK... me and Neil went to the wrong one first but it was worth it for the warm reception we received
). We all went out for a few beers and a meal and when last orders was called, were stunned to find that it was past 1AM!!
The day was constantly busy all day apart from when the painting comp was being announced and I think that there was a good turn out of punters.
I didn't really look at too much but the Frothers tables were excellent (if... to be blunt... you weren't permanently scarred by the Rev's table). Snit's Revenge was a worthy winner of innovative game.
I did managed to sneak away and get a few things so...
3 broken down, Corvus walkers that need a bit of work (a bargain for the price
1 GZG 'power-loader' mech (15mm).
2 Antenociti Spider weapon support platforms (15mm).
1 ALF from Four A miniatures.
1 Alien trooper from Four A miniatures.
5 Sharclons from Heresy Miniatures.
2 Graku and the mounted knight on lizardy thing from Twilight Miniatures.
16 Grymn in powered armour from Hasslefree miniatures.
1 Kev Adams pack from Wargames Foundry.
1 Salute 2012 mug.
1 Salute bag that contained a golden ticket (which would have got me a Kaiser Rushforth back pack if I'd bleeping checked), a show miniature, dice and a programme for the event... plus a few ads.
Yep... I think that about covers it
So... who went, what did you like and what did you buy?
